This week's "Ripped from Today's Headlines (or otherwise removed with an industrial cutting tool) segment, as recounted recently in the Southampton (England) Daily Echo:
HED: Southampton man cut free after getting penis stuck in steel pipe
A man who got his genitals stuck in a steel pipe had to be cut free by eight firefighters using an industrial cutting tool. The heavy-duty cutting gear had to be used to remove the three-inch-long hollow pipe after medics were unable to release it. The painstaking operation took around an hour.
The drama began after the man took himself to the ermergency room at the local general hospital. Restricted blood flow had left the man in a state of arousal, and unable to remove the pipe. A crew of firefighters was called, who arrived with specialized equipment. An industrial cutting wheel with a four-and-a-half-inch rotary disc was used to slice open the stainless steel pipe.
The man, in his thirties, offered no explanation for his predicament but was said to be "quite concerned and anxious." He was given an anaesthetic prior to the procedure.
Fire crew manager Adrian Johnson said, "It was a very delicate operation. We did not want anything heating up. The person who did it deserves a commendation for his nerve and steady hand." Meanwhile, watch manager Greg Garrett added, "I've only come across this type of thing three or four times in my 17 years as a firefighter. It's not a daily occurrence."
